Two Picasso paintings worth over US $66million stolen

Give me a break. How can these two paintings below by a painter who has trouble even putting the eyes on the correct side of the head, be worth so much? in this case beauty is indeed int eh eyes of the beholder (presumably the beholder needs as skewed eyes as those of the pics)

Anyway is you see anyone in the pub trying to fence a couple of funny looking pics then you mgiht get a good deal. (hang them in the toilet afterwards)

Two Picasso paintings worth an estimated €50m have been stolen from the Parisian home of one of the painter’s grand-daughters.

“Maya à la poupée” was taken from the apartment of Diana Widmaier-Picasso, an art historian, in Paris’s upmarket seventh arrondissement on Monday night. The picture was a 1938 portrait of her mother - Pablo Picasso’s child by Marie-Thérèse Walter - holding a doll.

A portrait of the artist’s second wife, Jacqueline Roque, and a drawing were also stolen during the theft, which occurred while two people were sleeping in the apartment. “Maya à la poupée” appeared to have been removed with its frame intact, the other painting had been cut away from its surround.
